When the first leak for the Battle of Gods movie poster hit the Internet, fans threw their arms up in the air and focused on what was clearly the most important scrap of information that would forever turn our world upside down: Gohan had golden hair.
Battle of Gods is set to take place “several years” after the defeat of Majin Boo, and “several years” before the final chapters of the series at the 28th Tenka’ichi Budōkai. At this point in the series, Gohan has received an “ultimate” power-up from the Elder Kaiōshin, and never again turns Super Saiyan, having said form seemingly replaced by this new upgrade… that is, until Dragon Ball GT comes around and just has him transform on the spot.
This week on our show, our expert panel dives in to the manga, the anime, Dragon Ball GT, guide books for each of those, and then onward into what little we know about Battle of Gods to definitively answer once and for all: why does Gohan have golden hair again?!
